Yesterday (Sat), starting at 4.15 PM, my husband and I spent the nearest we've had to a date in a year, driving around looking for an open supermarket, cursing ourselves for not shopping earlier. We weren't the only ones who got caught out; every supermarket car park we went to was filled with frustrated and hungry people with shattered BBQ dreams. Note to supermarkets: in future when you are shut for 2.5 days, would you mind putting a sign outside your car park and remove the tantalizing boards advertising grill meat? Thanks. Much obliged. Not that we'll be here for future holiday weekend shut-downs. But still. Think of it as a public service appeal.
So we ended up with pizza from Peppes for the second time in a week and by the time we got home, it was raining with a ferocity worthy of the tropics. Still, cannot believe we got caught out after all these years. Even more surprised at the number of (presumably) Norwegians thinking the same thing this morning; I mean all those people we drove around with yesterday were hardly foreigners, were they?
To anyone thinking of trying to send us food parcels, the petrol stations are open today and tomorrow, so we won't starve. Thanks :)
